Foods that reduce cancer riskA greater consumption of fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of developing invasive bladder cancer in women, finds researchers at the University of Hawaii.

They studied the data collected from 185,885 older adults over a period of 12.5 years, published in the Journal of Nutrition. Overall, 152 women and 429 men were diagnosed with invasive bladder cancer.

After adjusting for variables related to cancer risk, such as age, the researchers found that women who consumed the most fruits and vegetables had the lowest bladder risk. The researchers said women consuming the most yellow-orange vegetables were 52 percent less likely to have bladder cancer than women consuming the least yellow-orange vegetables. The study also suggested that women with the highest intake of vitamins A, C and E had the lowest risk of bladder cancer.
